Eyebrow hair transplants can be amazingly successful if done correctly for both men and women and can be done for both reshaping as well as recreating the eyebrows.
A great first step would be an online consultation. Often you can submit photos to top hair restoration surgeons for a complimentary evaluation and assessment. This should help lead you in the right direction. Having multiple consultations with different doctors will let you know your best options.
Should I get Eyebrow transplant
I recommend that you see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for a consultation to discuss which option is best for you. Hair Transplants are often done with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration.
An eyebrow transplant works pretty much the same as a head hair transplant procedure would.
The donor area typically resides along the rear or side regions of the patient’s scalp, the same area that would be used for any hair transplant.
Once we have extracted the required amount of hair, we transplant individual follicular units in the desired areas, to restore bald areas and create a natural-looking eyebrow.
It is very important that your transplanted hairs for your eyebrows are done in a way that harmonizes well with your eyes. Once we harvest the hair we will also make sure that is implanted at the right angle to replicate original growth.
Because the transplanted hair will come from the back of the head, it also requires us to match natural colour of the area being transplanted. These hairs will initially grow faster and will require trimming.
Hair Transplant can be one of the most rewarding procedures for both men and women. The procedure from start to finish is not simply a financial investment in yourself, but also an investment in time. Full cycle growth from the initial hair transplant procedure to fullness of growth takes 9 months to 1 year, so choosing a hair restoration specialist the first time around is absolutely essential, otherwise your journey to thicker and fuller hair could take more than a few years.
